I have been looking at books and websites to help identify plants in the San Gabriel Mountains and elsewhere in California. This interactive CD is absolutely the best resource I have found for my purposes. I'm used to paging through multiple field guides and cross-referencing images but this CD makes it so much easier. It behaves like a database and is extremely fast and intuitive. The pictures are very high quality and there are multiple perspectives which I have not seen in any online database. There is even an audio button beside the common and scientific names so you can hear the pronunciations; how cool is that?! I hope all nature field guides are like this in the future. Excellent value!
